Hi all
is there a easy way to straighten this fig (St Dominique) tree? is it worth while doing it? or should i just let straighter shoots come out and cut it back so it becomes fairly straight overall?
thanks for any advice

Hi tbcha1,
Personally, I'd tip prune the tree in spring to allow for more straight growth but still I feel the shape gives it real character! I have a st. Dominique fig tree which i straightened out with 4 stakes around the tree and tie to help keep the tree straight for the growing season.

Overall, if you want to straighten it, in spring tip prune the trees and use the 4 stakes method.
